Red Dead Redemption 2 Runs Best on the Xbox One X
  • Xbox One X Tapped as the Best Gaming Console to Play Red Dead Redemption 2

Xbox One X has been selected as the best gaming console by the developer Digital Foundry to be the best console that you could play Red Dead Redemption on

Red Dead Redemption 2 is up for release. It is one of the most anticipated game of the year. Gamers have been baited with graphics and artwork from the game. There has been excitement generated for the game on every major gaming event that has happened since the announcement of the game. The game’s graphics is the tentpole that is holding up the game’s good name.

Before the game is set to release, the developer Digital Foundry needed to declare a suitable gaming console for the game themselves. The game is set to release on four gaming consoles, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 4 Pro, Xbox One or Xbox One X. It is interesting to note that the game is releasing on three Xbox consoles and Xbox is its main competitor. PlayStation 4, despite being top of the class around the world is not the first recommendation by the developer. The game features a 4K display and console selection matters.

The Red Dead Redemption 2 version for PlayStation 4 plays at 1080p. PlayStation 4 Pro condenses the game at 1920x2160 resolution, and then upscales it to 4K through checkerboard rendering. This results in a “softer” image.

Digital Foundry’s John Linneman made a case for Xbox consoles. He said, “The resolution scaling between Xbox One and X is unprecedented. The enhanced console is designed to quadruple the base machine’s pixel-pushing output, but instead, Red Dead Redemption 2 is delivering a 6.2x boost to resolution, with further improvements on top of that.”

As the man himself has explained, the Xbox consoles are not going to reduce the resolution of the graphics. The 4K image is not getting cut down when you put in the game. There are however minor differences that were apparent among the Xbox consoles as well. Digital Foundry has stated clearly that Xbox One X is the best console to play Red Dead Redemption 2 on.

The Xbox One X has been able to deliver the most stable frame rate of 30 frames per second. It provides the sharpest image at the highest resolution which presents a striking difference which makes Xbox One X the clear winner.

What does that mean for Red Dead Redemption 2 and Xbox One X. Many retailers, including GameStop are offering a $100 discount on the price of Xbox One X with combination to the price of Red Dead Redemption 2. This discount is to go through till the release of Red Dead Redemption 2 on November 2nd. The excitement for Red Dead Redemption 2 assures game retailers that it will definitely sell the gaming console that the developer will tap.

It is the best news for Xbox One X owners. You only need to buy the game. For everyone who has been considering buying a Xbox One X, that’s a one vote to ‘yes, you should’. If you are a little patient, you can wait for Black Friday and Cyber Monday which are just a few weeks after the game release. We can expect some hefty discounts on both Xbox One X and Red Dead Redemption 2 as well.
